    I highly recommend Ken Selander for his professionalism, experience and knowledge on personal injury matters. Ken is among the best attorneys in the area when it comes to serious injury cases, as well as matters involving bicycle accidents, or third party neglect of children (such as day cares). The Selander & O'Brien firm is a long established and highly respected firm in the Rainier Valley.
